This Peka Peka site has a deep connection with Lockwood. In 1971 the family purchased the lupin covered site and started planting and planning for a holiday home. They ended up purchasing a Lockwood Initial show home originally belonging to Wellington Contractors, Tuohy Homes. However, a devastating fire destroyed the home almost 30 years after it was moved onto the site. In response, the family approached long standing contractors Tuohy Homes to replace the bach with a brand new, modern Lockwood.
The three-bedroom, 151m² home is designed for comfortable family holidays. The open plan kitchen and living area, two bedrooms, and the snug open out onto a large deck with built-in seating, while the third bedroom also has direct access to the outdoors. The intersecting gable rooflines create an impressive ceiling inside the home, with connected interior beams drawing the eye to the gable end windows in both the open plan living area and snug, separated by a stylish barn door.
The kitchen features bold black accents, including a pressed steel splashback and practical stainless-steel bench. The panelling around the island is a lovely feature and was crafted from Macrocarpa the family milled from the site. The Macrocarpa was also used to create a stylish custom vanity top in the bathroom. Black accents are continued throughout in the windows, doors, and hardware, creating a beautiful contrast with the blonded timber interior.
The family wanted to maintain the timber exterior of the previous home, so they opted Lockwood VG pine cladding along the front, while the back of the home is low-maintenance aluminium.
Under the experienced guidance of Tuohy Homes’ designer Ross Kerry, and Jeanette and Brent Tuohy, the family now has a beautiful new holiday home they can enjoy for generations to come.
